Turn the Page: Addressing Representation in Picture-Book Selection
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
This session from ASHA’s 2021 Schools Connect online conference provides tools for evaluating the picture books you currently use, equips you with arguments for why it is ethically important to use representative picture books and other materials, and helps you identify resources to develop a bookshelf that is aligned with your caseload composition. In addition, the presenters describe programs and strategies for implementing these selection practices into your everyday process.
Gather the picture books that you most frequently use in intervention and have them with you when you watch the session.
You will be able to:
for ethical reasons why representative books should be used in practice
picture books and other materials as being culturally generic, culturally
specific, and aligned (or not) with your caseload
a variety of resources and strategies for selecting diverse books
